Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) is a rather rare tumor derived from myeloid dendritic cells and featured by the ontogenesis and dissemination of CD1a+/CD207+ LCH cells affecting oral and maxillofacial region in most cases. We reported a case of rapid progressive LCH involving bilateral mandible, including one relapse in situ in a male adult patient with a history of repetitive dental interventions. No cases have previously been reported in literature associating external trauma history with the acceleration of the disease course. Diagnostic criteria for differentiation between maxillofacial LCH and periodontitis are also presented based on clinical observation and literature review.
